1/2 baguette, torn into 2-inch pieces
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 19-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 pickles (preferably half-sour), cut into bite-size pieces
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Kosher salt and pepper
2 6-ounce cans tuna, drained


Heat broiler.

On a broilerproof rimmed baking sheet, toss the baguette pieces with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Broil until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the beans, pickles, onion, vinegar, the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Fold in the broiled baguette. Divide the mixture among bowls and top with the tuna.
